"Crystal Scar Aura"... is it really balanced?
 
It gives 15% phys pen, 5% magic pen, and -20% healing. I understand the healing part because there are also health packs around, but why do physical attackers get more penetration? It seems like the team with lots of physical bruisers can win easily.

I'm not saying it's wrong, I just want an explanation.

The general idea is that AP damage comes out bursty and AD damage by nature comes out more sustained (with a few exceptions), so MR affects AP more point-for-point than armor. Conversely, penetration affects magic more point-for-point.

Makes it seem more fast paced and keeps the action flowing, faster deaths.

I think the magic pen should be buffed i'm not the master of balancing :p

I believe it's due to champions having about 15% or more armor at the beginning of the game, and even less magic resist. It's to make AD and AP champions do about the same damage without a build.

I'm not sure if that's correct or not, but that's what I see it doing.

Its also easier to build AP in the early game than it is to build AD. Hence why in ARAM's you'll have people like AP Tristana or AP Sivir since they can wreck sooner

Might be due to the 15% magic pen mastery. Combined with the aura, I'd imagine MR of any kind becomes terribly cost inffective.

Never agrue about double penetration. Just enjoy it.

%pens stack multiplicative if i remember correctly. 15% mastery + void staff gives like...49% magic pen i think? i bet you would only get 52~% if you did that on dominion.
